Tips Still Needed: Masked Robbers Hold Woman Hostage During Hold Up

KATY/HARRIS COUNTY (Covering Katy News) – Crimestoppers is still looking for tips from the public after a woman was tied up and stuffed into a closet at the Katy area business where she is employed. Video of the incident is above.

On Friday, May 24, 2019, at 11:55 pm, two armed males entered the Canteen Vending Services, located at 15951 Park Row, in the Katy area. The suspects entered the business at closing-time through the rear shop door and surprised the woman as she walked into the locker room. One of the suspects grabbed the woman by her hair and demanded the money from within the business. Her hands were tied behind her back and she was forced into the breakroom closet. The other suspect had bolt cutters and began to cut the locks to the lockers searching for money.

The suspects then fled the scene through the rear exit after realizing that the front doors were all locked.
